Hearts of Oak captain Fatwu Mohammed and Great Olympics defender Samuel Ashie-Quaye have been handed late invite to the Black Stars team for the World Cup qualifiers. 

The pair were given call ups by Ghana coach C.K Akonnor as some players fail to report due to travel restrictions.

Meanwhile, winger Tariqe Fosu has been excused from the team for the matches against Ethiopia and South Africa.

"Samuel Ashie Quaye (Great Olympics), Fatau Mohammed (Hearts of Oak) called up by Coach Charles Akonnor. Brentford City winger Tarique Fosu is excused from the upcoming assignments to sort out his future with the club," wrote the Football Association on their official Twitter handle.


Both players have been impressive for their clubs in the Ghana Premier League, with Fatawu Mohammed helping Hearts win the league and FA Cup double.

Samuel Ashie-Quaye was part of the Black Satellites team that won the Africa U-20 Cup of Nations.

Ghana are one of the countries on the continent that have been affected by the English FA's decision to restrict players from traveling to the danger zone.

This means the Ghanaian contingent in the English Premier League will not travel to South Africa.
